I was putting Naomi to bed tonight and finally thought to bring the camera to take this picture. This is one of Naomi's favorite books and we read it almost every night. There are not many words, but you can stick you face in the hole in the book for each picture. Here she is showing off her octopus face!!

Here she is giggling ... as usual

Here is a picture of Naomi and Zoe from the weekend. We went to a CNY lunch on Sunday with our adoption group. I didn't think to snap too many pictures but I did get a few of these little friends hugging.
On Saturday Francis had his birthday party. 12 8-year old boys. I must be insane. It went over pretty well actually, thank goodness it was not at home! 2 hours of laser-tag, pizza and cake. He had such a blast!

In other news, I am in new blogger hell. I upgraded to new blogger and somehow killed my old template and picture. I have spent so much time trying to upload a header I am at the end of my rope. I think I will look into some professional help!!!
